Mitsui Chemicals Inc Sponsors Smithers Rapra Technologys Tenth TPE Conference
Smithers Rapra Technology, is holding the tenth international conference on thermoplastic elastomers in Cologne on 23-24 October 2007.

Thermoplastic elastomers usage continues to grow at a faster rate (6.2 % annually through 2009', The Freedonia Group) than most other rubber and plastic materials. There are therefore significant commercial opportunities for exploiting their unique properties, for example in automotive, appliance, personal care, medical and sporting applications. Thermoplastic elastomers offer the design freedom and easy processing of thermoplastics, together with the flexibility and elastic recovery of rubber.

Now in its tenth year, TPE 2007 looks at the latest developments in SBC, TPO, TPV, COPE, COPA, and TPU materials, together with additives, processing, applications, commercial and design aspects for TPEs. This year's event has been kindly sponsored by Mitsui Chemicals Inc, and marks the first year that Smithers Rapra Technology has combined the TPE conference with the world famous K fair in nearby Dusseldorf. Being only a short distance from the K Messe, is it expected that the TPE conference will attract a number of delegates who will go on to attend K later in the week. Therefore a number of bedrooms are being held at the Marriott Renaissance, Cologne from 21-26 October for those people attending both the conference and the trade fair.

The two day technical conference will include a conference dinner hosted by Mitsui Chemicals Inc, at the esteemed Alter Wartesaal restaurant in central Cologne. All conference delegates are welcome to attend and will be sent a dinner invitation upon registering for the conference.

In addition, for those new to TPEs or simply in need of a refresher, Smithers Rapra Technology is also organising a pre-conference expert seminar at the Marriott Renaissance Cologne the day before the conference. Delegates can choose whether to attend the seminar as a stand-alone course or to attend both meetings at a discounted price.

All registrations received by 23 August 2007 will be entitled to early bird discounts for both the conference and the seminar.
